    Hi 

     

    We have lots of different forms with a varying number of submissions.  I want to know if there is a way I can use the customised time frame feature but on multiple forms at once?  Ie I want to delete as submissions up until the beginning of this month on all our forms at once.

    I know how to do it one form at a time.

     

    thanks

    I'm afraid to say that it is not possible to delete multiple submissions in multiple forms at once. You can only do it for each form. How to Delete Form Submission Data.

    Alternatively, you can use the Auto Delete Submissions App to delete submissions as soon as you have received or it arrives from the JotForm servers. However, you need to backup your data to avoid data loss. You can integrate your form to any cloud storage integration in JotForm like Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.

    If you need further assistance, do let us know.
    Regards.

    Why is this not a feature?

    @jackkellerinc: Maybe because there is already a delete function in the form submissions page and you can select a timeframe. Plus, switching the form is now easy in the form submissions page. If you want this feature, I would suggest creating a new thread requesting such.

    I am already aware of a delete function in the form submissions page but as the original requester asked " I want to delete as many submissions up until the beginning of this month on all our forms at once." But yet the request/question wasn't legitimately answered or resolved.
